Species: Squalicorax Shark
Age: Cretaceous period
Location Found: Morocco
The Squalicorax Shark (also known as a Crow Shark) is a prehistoric predator that lived during the Cretaceous period, approximately 113 to 66 million years ago. They were estimated to have reached up to 7 meters / 22 ft in length. Their teeth have a curved crown and are heavily serrated, excellently designed for ripping flesh, which would have made this large shark a top predator in the ocean!
When a sharks teeth become worn the predator will ‘shed’ these teeth, and these will be replaced with new sharper, stronger teeth. However, unlike humans, Sharks are known for re-shedding hundreds of teeth on a regular basis, which makes them a fruitful find with fossil hunters.
